Original news, posted on 24.01.2009

Finnish Pelimanni-Metallers Korpiklaani have issued the following update: "In 2008 we have been quite busy. We have had two successful tours: the Paganfest Tour and the Finnish Fire Tour. We recorded and released our fifth album "Korven Kuningas". In the whole we played over 80 gigs, that means about one gig in every four days. We had a lot of fun, met many old friends and made new ones. So, this has been a pretty good year for us. 2009 promises to become even better; a long cherished dream of us becomes fulfilled: we will tour the USA and Canada in Paganfest 2! We are invited for Wacken Open Air on their 20th anniversary festival, and many more gigs are in the works. In February we will enter the studio again, to record a brand new album. These last days of 2008, we will make a small tour with In Extremo in Germany, and end the year in Nosturi, Helsinki, on a new year's celebration concert with our friends from Moonsorrow and Kiuas. We wish you all a happy new year and hope to see you around somewhere."

The new Korpiklaani album is due early summer this year and it will be entitled "Karkelo" ("Party" in English).


Furthermore, some of the band's songs appear in the new Bam Margera movie. You can see a few clips here (Reindeer cock and reindeer's eye ball eating), and more here and here ("Viima" starting 4:50min).


UPDATED, on 10.04.2009 (thanks to Balls of Jericho)

You can view the cover artwork for the new Korpiklaani album "Karkelo" (release date June 26th) at this location. The "Karkelo" cover art was designed by Jan "Örkki" Yrlund again.


UPDATE (thanks to Sjuk and worm_is_gloaming)

As stated by the band: "Time to reveal the tracklist of our upcoming album "Karkelo" (release date June 26th)! But before we do, we have some other hot news for you. On May 25th we will release a single titled "Vodka", on which will be two songs that will absolutely boost every party: "Vodka" and "Juodaan Viinaa"! And even better, this single will also appear as picture vinyl. "Karkelo" will appear as audio cd, as digipack and as picture vinyl."

Naaah.
Spyroid - 24.01.2009 at 16:02  
Great title but I prefer Korven Kuningas, since "Korven" means "the sausage" in Swedish, ehm...
Mother_North - 24.01.2009 at 17:05  
These guys rock, I´ve met them after a concert and they are super nice. I love their sound and I am dying to hear the new album.

No! Bands like Motorhead always released the same album and they kick ass.
I'm stoked too. Hopefully this new one will have a drinking song (unlike the last one).
The last two videos in the article were removed lol.
Black Conundrum - 24.01.2009 at 21:21  
Oh, yeah. Korpiklaani is already in the progress of a new album! Sweet! These guys seem to work hard, what with all those gigs and releasing a studio album every year since 2005.
Daggon - 24.01.2009 at 22:55  
Wiii, Let's begin with the karkelo! I'm happy to read more news from this guys... Vodka... lol hehehe.

I don't know. Its great and all but they need to stop pumping out generic music. Maybe spend some more time on the songs.

One new album after another
bard - 25.01.2009 at 01:58  
I'll get it. I don't really see how they could disappoint at this juncture.
kaos666 - 26.01.2009 at 01:13  
A year cannot pass without a 'klaani album!
Marcus - 26.01.2009 at 02:52  
I wish they would spend some time one their albums instead of just pumping them out year after year. Tales along this road was straight, but not much more has come out of them since then. Too bad.

Abattoir - 27.01.2009 at 11:00  
Well, who would expect the album title like this one from them
White Winter Sun - 27.01.2009 at 14:37

You want drinking songs, well, "Vodka", "Juodaan Viinaa" (Let's Drink Booze), that pints of beer song and kohmelo (hang over) have something to do with drinking.
Janne - 24.04.2009 at 16:49  
VODKA! We need some VODKA!!!!
Janne - 24.04.2009 at 17:22  
And the cover artwork of the single!!! it's so Korpiklaanish!
Feng - 24.04.2009 at 18:19  
I love these guys so much. I've noticed over the years they have used Finnish much more in their songs and titles, I like that!
Uirapuru - 24.04.2009 at 19:09  
Damn, its almost one album for year... I like them, but in this rythm it will become boring very soon...
AnarChrist - 24.04.2009 at 19:23

BRING IT ON HITCHES!!!

How can it be a party with only one person on the cover?
Black Conundrum - 25.04.2009 at 00:54  
That's awesome that the track listing is revealed. It's awesome that all but two songs have Finnish titles. Korpiklaani for the win!

I think the same thing happens with Pagan/Viking/Folk Metal than with Powermetal, in the sense that lots of fans seem to lack criticism and swallow almost everything as long as it's folk-ish or if it has viking themes. That's why you see so many generic bands in these genres that are not necessarily bad but are nothing special.

Also, I have the impression lots of people in Europe are suckers for this kind of music much more than here, in America. Imo, Pagan/Viking/Folk metal is even more overcrowded by sub-par and quite average bands than Powermetal.

I have a friend who lives in Finland and he told me that "Karkelo" is an extremely childish title that doesn't fit for an album that is supposed to be metal. It means 'party', yes, but party for 5 year old children.

ahh yes. i posted that so many monthes ago....I don't know if I even read that far.
But wow that sure makes up for the lack of drinking songs in the last album.
I don't like Vodka though........so I doubt I'll like the opening track.

Agreed on the first and second.
But your Finnish friend might be really wrong, because most of the Finns are arrogant bastards that don't know what they're talking about, especially they know nothing about their own history..
Karkelo might nowdays sound childish but it is actually a REALLY OLD word that is understandably used as a folk metal album name as they use old Finnish words in their songs alot.
Korpiklaani's music might be really medicore but these guys really respect their cultural heritage and don't fuck up with these kind of things...

I don't think this guy is arrogant. He's very nice and his knowledge on metal music is high.
And he told that "karkelo" is a really old word, indeed.

Saw them play vodka live, sick song.

Can't wait this to be released, awesome music!
